In order to copy files to and from the TouchPad, USB mode must be enabled. However, HP doesn’t support the Windows Portable Device protocol, which is why the TouchPad appears as a generic FAT32 USB drive under Windows 7. This turns out to be a good thing for Mac users, because the FAT32 format is natively supported for USB drives. So, there’s no need to install a special program to enable file transfers like you would need to with an Android-based device. The disadvantage is that you can't use the TouchPad while it's in USB mode.
Taking a screenshot is easy. Press the home and power buttons at the same time, just as you would on an iPad. All of the files are stored in a folder labeled “screencaptures,” which is visible when you plug the HP TouchPad into a computer.
